  The upper Arb has been groomed and a track has been reset over the entire system. Condition should be superb. Get out and ski before the next big storm rolls in.

  Upper and Lower Arb trails are groomed and tracked. The lower was tracked late Sunday and all trails are in great shape. There is one large drift on the outer prairie loop to be wary of. The upper is groomed and a track was set on all but a couple of narrow segments. Skate deck has firmed up with the cold. Groomers will be taking a break until the next system arrives. Get out and enjoy as the temps look great this week for skiing.

  I skied the lower arb trails around noon and they had been recently groomed and are in excellent condition, albeit slow due to the temps. A couple of segments (including the eastern sections closest to Canada Ave) were not groomed or rolled but there are tracks set to the iron bridge parking lot.

  Upper Arb: Groomers did a great job getting out once the wind died down. The trails are all groomed except caution hill and the field loop along Hwy 19 where there are still large snow drifts to deal with. Plenty of base, not much tree debris, and the snow is faster than I thought it would be considering how cold it is. Lower arb also looked rolled, but no tracks set.

  Skied the Upper Arb Sunday night. The groomer was out and set tracks on 75% of the trail and expanded the width. It was slow and soft with the new snow, needs time to set up and some additional rolling to be really good for skating but coverage was great and it was a pleasant ski.
